Description by OLDIES.com:
Tim Robbins is Jacob Singer, a man who lives in a nightmare. Wounded in Vietnam, he's now back at home in New York City. Torn between the memories of his son and terrifying wartime demons, Jacob is slowly losing his grip on reality. His beautiful girlfriend (Elizabeth Pena) only adds confusion to his life, drawing him into a web of sexual intrigue; but ultimately, it's his friend Louis (Danny Aiello of Do the Right Thing) who turns out to be the only one Jacob can truly count on.
- Theatrical release: November 1990.
- Bruce Joel Rubin began writing JACOB'S LADDER in the fall of 1980 and finished a year later. His script bounced around Hollywood from one director to another; in 1984 it was listed in AMERICAN FILM as one of the ten best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. Eventually, when Lindsay Doran became a vice president at Paramount Pictures, the studio purchased it.
- JACOB'S LADDER was filmed entirely on location in New York and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
